Olympiske leker / The Olympic Games

Behind the commercials, the celebrity focus, logistical stress and economic issues there is something quite beautiful about the concept of the Olympic Games.

If we really are so different, if we have to have those flags and borders, we might as well try to finish all the fighting with some rubber balls, racing around an oval lawn and see who can throw an iron ball attached to a chain the longest.

So, to mark the opening of the Olympic Games in London we’ve decided to give away our Olympic anthem “Olympiske leker” for free together with a bonus version, Olympiske leker v.2.

Also, has there ever been a better time for competitions? We hereby launch the #casiolympics on Twitter! The person that comes up with the best suggestion for a new sport to be included in the Olympics wins our album and a Gullbrød (Golden Bread) chocolate.

Our friend Chad Blevins from Philadelphia has hand drawn a magnificent video for the song.
enjoy.
